Who does this notice affect?
All importers and customs brokers who request a ‘Location Change’ using the ‘Request a Reassessment’ function in the Cargo Online Lodgement System (COLS).
What has changed?
There are no changes to the COLS system but the Department has noted an increased use of ‘Request a Reassessment’ to change Approved Arrangement locations.
The use of the ‘Request a reassessment’ category is out of scope as a category currently exists to manage location change requests.
The use of ‘Request a reassessment’ will no longer be accepted to amend Approved Arrangement locations. All importers and customs brokers will be advised via email to re-lodge using the ‘Make an Enquiry’ option in COLS selecting the “Location change” enquiry type.
